So it's the Champions League again for Manchester City - but they won't be there as English champions. Instead that honour goes to Chelsea, who are celebrating their first Premier League title since 2010.

But who will be Chelsea's French equivalents in the Champions League next season? Defending champions Paris St-Germain are firmly in the driving seat to win Ligue 1, join us again from 19:30 BST for live updates from their trip to Nantes.

In the meantime, take a look at victorious Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho's barely-believable

trophy record in numbers. Clue: It is very impressive. Au revoir!

Tottenham 0-1 Man City

Adam, London: I don't think any realistic Spurs fan thought we could achieve Champions league football this season, we were only looking for progress which has definitely been seen today.

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini, speaking to BBC: "I said before we were going to see a beautiful game because both teams play offensive football so I expect the fans enjoyed the game. It was a close game and Sergio scored a great goal. I am happy about that.

"You must remember against Tottenham that Chelsea conceded five goals, we have a clean sheet. Tottenham create chances with offensive players, but I think we have as many chances as Tottenham. We have to finish the season now and then we will analyse it.

"I think it's important to finish as near the top as possible and see where we need to improve. Maybe Chelsea are more consistent this year and they won the league but we scored more when we did it."

Stat attack

Spurs have taken fewer points than any other team in the head to heads between the top six teams this season (8).

Pellegrini dodges question about his future

Tottenham 0-1 Man City

The inevitable 'will you still be here next season' question is dangled in front of Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini down in the White Hart Lane tunnel. He doesn't take the bait.

"I'm not going to answer that question," huffs the Chilean before walking away.

'Hart was the difference'

Tottenham 0-1 Man City

Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino: "Joe Hart was brilliant today. He was the man of the match, and the difference between the teams.

"We had a chance to score from a corner, and there was a good counter attack from City and finish from Aguero. Our mentality is to attack the opposing goals. I think we were a little unlucky.

"Aguero is a brilliant player. The chance that he had, he scored. But we are disappointed."

We must take chances - Pochettino

Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino: "I feel proud of our players. The performance was very good and we deserved much more. But the effort was brilliant.

"We had three or four chances in the first five minutes, but when you play Manchester City, you need to score when you get those chances."

Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart, speaking to BBC Sport: "We always produce a good game against Spurs. We counter attacked well, and when you have David Silva and Sergio Aguero up there you always get chances.

"Spurs really came at us today and sometimes you have to dig in and we did that. Chelsea's season is over now, congratulations to them, but ours isn't. It's good to have things to play for even though it's not a trophy now, and we'll fight to the end of the season."

Tottenham defender Danny Rose, speaking to Sky Sports: "We deserved a point, and had two or three good chances. Manchester City scored with their first real chance and had that class to put the ball in the net. We're all bitterly disappointed because we deserved something out of the game.

"I think we've done well against the big teams at home but everyone should be proud of themselves. City have just shown a bit more quality in front of goal. The chances that did come for us, Joe Hart's made some great saves and kept them in the game.

"We're looking to get nine points out of their remaining three games now. I think we've shown great work-rate and attitude and need to show that in the last three games."

Sergio Aguero

Tottenham 0-1 Man City

Mauricio Pochettino reckons his team deserved much more than the defeat which they suffered - and he is probably right. We will bring you more of the Argentine's post-match reaction in a few minutes.

Tottenham 0-1 Man City

Any lingering dreams of Champions League qualification for Spurs are as good as over. Mauricio Pochettino's men are seven points behind fourth-placed Manchester United with Liverpool sandwiched in-between. In short they need a miracle.

Tottenham 0-1 Man City

Neil Adams: This Premier League season for Spurs is petering out like a bad date, you just want it to be over as soon as possible.

Chris Randell: Very good win, Blues. Silva, Aguero and Hart were excellent.

Player reaction

Tottenham 0-1 Man City

Manchester City keeper Joe Hart: "We have showed what we're about today. We have not played well - and we have done what teams have done to us.

"Sergio can always get us a goal, we managed to get the ball up to him and then we've defended for our lives.

"Congrats to Chelsea on winning the title - it is well deserved. To lead from the front and stay there - we've done that before and it's difficult - is impressive. But they know we will be back stronger next season."

Tottenham 0-1 Man City

David Pleat at White Hart Lane

Former Tottenham manager on BBC Radio 5 live:

"Big celebrations by the City staff. Tottenham started well, pressed well, full of energy but spurned clear chances. Aguero's fierce predatory instincts scored a super goal and City held out with string defensive work for a good away win."

Tottenham 0-1 Man City

Jubilant scenes in the away end - they have forgotten what it is like to celebrate a win on the road. City have avoided a fifth straight away defeat to move nine points clear of fifth-placed Liverpool, with just three matches left. City have a huge goal advantage over the Reds too.

Even Manuel Pellegrini manages a smile - and a selfie with some fans behind the dugout.

FULL-TIME

Tottenham 0-1 Man City

Game over! Sergio Aguero leaps off the Manchester City bench, punching the air in delight. His goal means Manchester City are all but assured of playing in the Champions League again next season.

INJURY TIME

Paulinho

Another Spurs attack breaks down, allowing City to go for the jugular - if they want to. But they don't, instead deciding to cautiously keep possession close to the halfway line. Almost home and hosed...

INJURY TIME

Tottenham 0-1 Man City

Spurs hog possession as they pile forward - but City's defence is standing firm. Two minutes to go....

INJURY TIME

Tottenham 0-1 Man City

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino thought Erik Lamela's header was going in. The Argentine was almost dancing down the touchline in celebration...

Joe Hart keeps Manchester City ahead - again! The England keeper shows the reflexes of a cat to push Erik Lamela's firm header over the crossbar.

Aguero will be the matchwinner if City can see out FIVE minutes of injury-time....

David Pleat at White Hart Lane

Former Tottenham manager on BBC Radio 5 live:

"Aguero is superb. Kane is a promising young striker but this man is the real thing, He is so sharp, has brilliant control and so quick."

SUBSTITUTION

Tottenham 0-1 Man City

Here is that substitution after a brief delay as Aleksandar Kolarov received some treatment from the City physio. The Serb left-back is fine to carry on, meaning Sergio Aguero is the man withdrawn. Huge ovation from the away end for the man who is set to be the matchwinner...

Tottenham 0-1 Man City

Manchester City are readying Belgian defender Dedryck Boyata - another forgotten man - as Manuel Pellegrini looks to shut up shop.

Paul Moore: Wish Spurs would start more games with Kane, Ade, Soldado up front ... they'd be in the Champions League positions.

Aman Sheth: Milner the English Ronaldo!

Tottenham 0-1 Man City

David Pleat at White Hart Lane

Former Tottenham manager on BBC Radio 5 live:

"Adebayor should play in the middle and his teammate need to put one or two balls into the mixer and hope he can get his head on one. This is a very tense game, very few people are leaving."

SUBSTITUTION

Tottenham 0-1 Man City

I can't think of many examples of an incoming player being met with derision from sets of supporters - we have one here. Spurs' ex-Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor is called from the bench to replace Nacer Chadli.

Adebayor has seen just 40 minutes of Premier League action in six months....

Tottenham 0-1 Man City

Another chance for Paulinho, another top-drawer save from Joe Hart. The City stopper has been exceptional today, beating away another effort from the Brazil midfielder to stop Spurs clawing themselves level.

Tottenham 0-1 Man City

The Spurs fans leap to their feet in excitement as Paulinho meets Erik Lamela's free-kick with a thumping header. The ball drops just wide - and he was offside anyway.

Tottenham 0-1 Man City

I'm reliably informed that Samir Nasri ran just 260m before he was substituted. That's about as far as it is from my desk to the tea machine.

Viv: This is Kolarov's best game defensively. Never seen him contribute this much to defence. Playing across field and all.

Come: Two tasks for Spurs: 1. Score a goal 2. Score another goal

Advices Wale: If City had played this way all season long they would have given Chelsea a serious fight for the title.

PENALTY APPEAL

Tottenham 0-1 Man City

Another Manchester City penalty shout. This time it is full-back Pablo Zabaleta who feels aggrieved after his burst into the right side of the Spurs box is ended by Danny Rose's sliding challenge. Firm but fair in my eyes. Rose nicked the ball before taking out the man in his follow through.

It has not been Harry Kane's day. The Spurs striker has another sniff of the City goal, but his stinging half-volley only finds the body of Aleksandar Kolarov.

SUBSTITUTION

Tottenham 0-1 Man City

Nope, Samir Nasri cannot continue. The Manchester City midfielder lasts just three minutes before having to trudge off with what appears to be a groin injury. Short and not very sweet. On comes Wilfried Bony.

Oh dear, Samir Nasri looks to already be in trouble. The Frenchman goes down clutching his left upper leg after being dispossessed inside the Spurs area. Those Spurs boos suddenly turn to cheers...

Next to appear next to the fourth official's electronic board is Manchester City's Samir Nasri. Ex-Arsenal midfielder Samir Nasri that is. He is not given a generous round of applause, instead being 'welcomed' on to the pitch by a chorus of boos.

SUBSTITUTION

Tottenham 0-1 Man City

The touchline is a hive of activity. Spurs make the first change as Paulinho replaces Ryan Mason, who is given a generous round of applause.

Tottenham 0-1 Man City

Manchester City are the side who look most in control at the moment as Tottenham struggle to create any clearcut chances. Oh hang on - here's one (well, a half chance). Eric Dier arcs a delicious right-wing cross around a statuesque City defence, but the sliding Roberto Soldado cannot stick an outstretched boot on to the ball.
